Here are two long-form sets from Octane Coffee in Atlanta 2007. More information below:

By that time, we knew the place quite well and got to the decoration with glow in the dark garden pebblesAtlhack had meetings there. Much thanks to Tony from Octane and Gavin for giving me an opportunity to play! Both performances used ChucK exclusively.

The first gig was on May 29th, 2007. Since it was a long set, I ended up using both newly improvised material as well as stubs that I had recently developed for the Atlanta Laptop Battle series that year. As well, you’ll hear “Sample Forest” sections that I pulled out with the sample-based composition tool I was developing (Mused). Here is the recent edit–I removed some of the many glitches:

Here is a more slightly more digestible excerpt from Octane 1, named Triple Chorus:

The second gig was on August 8, 2007. I remember having made a change in my setup that allowed changing the tempo in mid-stream, but there was a code error, leading to the out-of-phase tempos you’ll hear below. The set is also book-ended by a real-time WiiMote instrument and a sample from the Ravel Piano trio. Besides the clean synthesis, I also miked the room to get in some of the ambiance of the place. Enjoy!
